What does it take to raise happy, productive, and successful kids? More than you might imagine.

How Children Succeed ...in 30 Minutes is an introduction to the fascinating idea that the intangibles of character and grit interplay with the tangibles of reading, writing, and arithmetic to produce happy, well-adjusted kids.

• Key takeaways from Tough's arguments and research
• Suggestions for applying Tough's theories in everyday life
• A definition of key terms
• Conclusions gleaned from How Children Succeed

In his groundbreaking best seller, How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character, Paul Tough examines the research of neuroscientists, medical doctors, psychologists, educators, and economists to identify the qualities that lead to successful children and, ultimately, successful adults.

How Children Succeed ...in 30 Minutes is a concise guide that will inspire you to read How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character and to appreciate the power of character in both the lives of children and adults.

    How Children Succeed¿. In 30 Minutes is an overview of the key p

    How Children Succeed…. In 30 Minutes is an overview of the key points touched upon within the full book. Within the overview they discuss how within current culture children are always rewarded and don’t know what its like to “fail” or not succeed. This is causing them to expect to always be right or be catered to when they are on their own. 
    Interacting with your children by reading to them and helping them to learn the value of losing and failing but pushing forward and working harder to succeed next time are easy ways to help your child begin to grow and become independent. 
    This is a read I would recommend to any new parent and even parents of younger children. It will help us to shape the next generation in to hardworking individuals.

    This book is a summary of Paul Tough¿s book How Children Succeed

    This book is a summary of Paul Tough’s book How Children Succeed. It provides readers with a snap-shot
    of the premise of the book and is easily read in 30 minutes as the title suggests. The book is well-written
    and well researched making it easy to follow along with. Tough shares his own personal observations
    combine with research and case studies to help make his case. This book is not a substitute for reading
    the full-length version of How Children Succeed. This book will revolutionize the landscape of parenting
    and education in our country. As Tough points out in his book it is not test scores that determine success
    later in life but character- a sentiment that is particularly encouraging to anyone who may not test well.
    I think this book should be mandatory reading for teachers, parents and anyone who is interested in the
    anatomy of success.

    Providing brilliant insight into the correlations between charac

    Providing brilliant insight into the correlations between character and success, this book is a must-read for parents and teachers. Summarizing conclusions made by Peter Tough in his book, How Children Succeed, this book shines light on the theory that character development is the most important factor in success, not cognitive abilities. By instilling grit, self-control, zest, emotional intelligence, gratitude, optimism, and curiosity in children, they are more likely to graduate college and become successful adults.  Cultivating character in children teaches them how to handle failure, stay motivated, and believe in self-improvement. This book teaches you how to apply these concepts through chess and other techniques, so that you may help your child become more successful in life.  There is also a recommended reading section in the back if you wish to learn more about noncognitive child development.
